INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Today in Tribe History: April 29, 1931

Strong Pitching, Two Homers Send Seattle to Win in Cleveland; Mariners 3, Indians 1

Ariel Miranda and a pair of relievers limited Cleveland to just four hits on the night and a pair of home runs provided all of the offense for Seattle as the Mariners knocked off the Indians, 3-1, on Friday night. Miranda, the 28-year-old Cuban left-hander, got the start for Seattle and was making his 15th career start and 17th overall appearance while taking on the Indians for the...

Cleveland Indians lose a snoozer to the Mariners

Somehow the Indians found a way to be more boring than the second round of the NFL draft. Jose Ramirez hit a home run, Carlos Carrasco looked great for the most part and I still have about 480 words to make this recap viable. So, uh, how about that rain? The legendary ability of the Cleveland Indians to be mystified by no-name left-handed pitchers continued tonight, with Ariel...

Could changes in mechanics bring Kenta Maeda back?

It is a mad world we are living in. The Cubs are last season’s champs. The Toronto Blue Jays have the worst record in baseball. The Miami Marlins are in second place in the NL East with a 10-9 record, and that record is just a half-game worse than the Cleveland Indians, who were last year’s runner-up in the World Series. Down is up, up is down!No division is safe from weird...

The Yandy Diaz Project Is One to Follow

Yandy Diaz was already interesting before the 2017 season began. His combination of offensive and defensive skills compelled Carson Cistulli to include him often as a member of the Fringe Five, a group that’s building quite a track record. He became more interesting early this season, however, when he made the Indians’ 25-man roster and filled in at third base (while Jose Ramirez...

Cleveland Indians Player of the Week: April 16 - April 22

The Doc is in, pitching is back, and Yan Gomes actually hit the ball. The Cleveland Indians are back! Well, they never really went anywhere, but seeing everyone struggle at the same time to start the season was torture. Those struggles appear to finally be over. The starting rotation — namely Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and yes even Josh Tomlin — strung together a series...

A trusted piece of Jason Kipnis’ gear is missing so he turned to social media for help.Since his days as a collegiate baseball player, the now 30-year-old Indians second baseman has had on a white shinguard when he stepped into the batter’s box.

Is Francisco Lindor adding legit power to his arsenal?

The first two seasons of Francisco Lindor’s MLB career couldn’t have gone much better – especially when specifically talking about his individual performance. He’s paired Gold Glove defense with more-than-adequate production at the plate, but if we had to nitpick, his offense did take a slight step back last year compared to his rookie campaign.Despite getting over 200 more...
